This movie is awesome. It takes place in the future, like hover cars and stuff. My memory of it is a little fuzzy. This guy gets this invitation or something to this hotel. The hotel gets held up by these alien dude, and the guy finds out about this ship, or laser, or meteor heading towards "earth" and he has to stop it. Tis awesome.

Yeah, I remember this one vaguely. I remember at the end, Laurence Fishburne is like, the president of the planet or something, and he calls the hero's house to tell the hero's mother that her son saved the planet, and he was like, "Hello, this is the president," and the mother was like, "How stupid do you think I am. If you don't quit pulling pranks I'm going to call the cops," and she keeps going on. It was pretty funny.
I think Bruce Willis was in it. Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus from the Matrix) and Uma Thurman...?
"Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the way of improvement."
But how can you forget this gem of a film. Just look at the checklist: Apocaylptic situation: check Humor: Check Explosions: Check Story: Check Cast: Check
Bruce Willis .... Korben Dallas Gary Oldman .... Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg Ian Holm .... Father Vito Cornelius Milla Jovovich .... Leeloo Chris Tucker .... Ruby Rhod
With a cast like that how can you go wrong?
Then there is the story:
Cab driver meets girl who is realy a perfectly engineered being, meets preist who's religion hinges around said being, four stones, alien beings, and a ball of EVIL. Zorg enters as buisnessman who tries to steal stones, fails. Everyone finds out the stones are on Flosten Paradise, where Corbin Dallas wins tickets to due to a rigged contest, and gets straddled by the efemate Ruby Rod.... more explosions follow, ends with a new moon.
But the key to the film are the one liners, which are classic in so many regards. Here, a breif culling:
DJ Ruby Rhod: What's wrong with you? What you screamin' for? Every 5 minutes there's somethin', a bomb or somethin'. I'm leavin'. bzzzz.
Mugger: Give me the cash! Korben Dallas: Been here long? Mugger: Yeah, long enough. Come on, give me the cash! Korben Dallas: Is that a Z-140? Alleviated titanium. Neurocharged assault model. Mugger: Yeah, yeah. Korben Dallas: Good thing for me it's not loaded. Mugger: [giggles] What do you mean it's not loaded? Korben Dallas: You have to... push that yellow button to load it. Mugger: [pauses, then laughs hesitantly] Korben Dallas: Take your time. Mugger: [continues to shake while reaching for the yellow button of the rifle] Korben Dallas: You want me to - there you go. Mugger: Give me the cash! [Pulls trigger, but nothing happens] Korben Dallas: [points gun at mugger] That's a very dangerous gun. Maybe you better let me hang on to this one for you, huh? [grabs rifle and places it in rack of other guns] Korben Dallas: You don't mind, do you? Mugger: No! Korben Dallas: You sure? Mugger: No. Take it. I don't need it! Korben Dallas: [giggles while pointing gun at mugger] That's a very nice hat. Mugger: You like it? God! [dances in front of Korben]
David brings some new clothes for Leeloo - she examines them with delight, then casually strips off her robe - David and Cornelius quickly turn around] David: They really made her... Priest Vito Cornelius: Perfect. I know.
Police: Are you classified as human? Korben Dallas: Negative, I am a meat popsicle.
